Could you please check the following sentence.

Is this sentence correct?


Neither my refusal nor mocking laughter of my gaze could make you give/ gave up.

What I try to say is...

I refused (whatever the person asked for)
and at the same time.. I looked at him as I was laughing
but he didin't change his mind...

neither this nor that could make you gave up or give up

As a Brit, but not a teacher, my suggestion would be:

Neither my refusal nor the mocking laughter of my gaze could make you give up.

Hope this helps
